Tiny House User Experience

This spring turned out to be relevantly stressful and I decided to move outside the city to improve my life and work balance. I thought that living in a tiny cabin at the seashore would be so cinematic! I came across Brette Haus rental ad and realized that the house is cozy enough for me and my dog. I always wanted to live in a home like that, not a box or a container.
Despite compact dimensions the home is very spacious and broad. The house looked pretty plain, but there are a shower and WC already installed. This house was truly a quiet harbor for me, I loved finding myself in a peaceful space. Here I could just get away from everything and contemplate different natural events such as the power of strong wind, the fall of a strong oak but at the same time I am in “isolation” I can’t hear any noise or turbulence inside the cabin. By the way, 90% of the house parts are wooden, it really flows in the air!

The Baltic Sea coast is very windy, so I took a winter outfit with me and it was beneficial for walking along the beach but absolutely useless inside the house. It was very comfortable inside even during stormy nights. I am considering myself as a child of nature, so I am having a special connection with it. It gives me power and inspiration when I am meeting the dawn in the middle of the forest, especially near the sea. The huge windows, which contains this tiny cabin gave me the opportunity to fully enjoy an amazing view and the spirit of the Baltic forest.
I have learned the cabin is made with cutting edge technology and it's a kind of transformable architecture. There is no problem to fold and relocate it to another beautiful location. Such a sustainable nomadic solution doesn't require much paperwork!
It was one of the best getaways for me. But time to say goodbye suddenly came. I must admit it is truly amazing this tiny cabin does not affect the natural space, where it's located. Guys from Brette Haus just removed the furniture, folded the house the next day, and relocated it to a lakeside. There was no sign of this cabin when I came back in a week.
So my spring story ended there...

In many countries, this eliminates the need for a building permit. However, we recommend you contact the local authorities for the verified information on current building regulations.

  • You say Brette Haus technology is bespoke. What makes it unique?
Foldable houses Brette Haus are being built using a unique combination of our patented hinge system and famous Austrian Cross-Laminated Timber technology. CLT panels manufactured by glueing together several orthogonal layers of wooden lamellas in special press conditions. This eliminates the risk of a house shrinkage, improves the insulation and durability, and allows you to do without heat insulation even in cold climates. Our cabins generate about 80% less waste and use 99% less water than standard site-built houses. We produce houses with a positive environmental impact. We have a strong principal regarding the quality and eco policies, we make our houses only from natural materials.

  • How do I relocate home later?
There are two ways to further relocations. First, you may hire a crane truck to fold, relocate and unfold your tiny home. Crane truck should be strong enough to lift a house. You will need 2 workers to help crane with folding and lifting according to our manual.
The second option - we will deliver your house to your place, and if necessary - move to a new one. In this case, each unfolding of the house takes only three hours.

Installation Process
  • Who does the installation?
We do! Brette Haus team will deliver and install your expandable house. You will see the fastest house installation! It takes up to 3 hours to install and connect your cabin to the mains. All you need to worry about is to prepare any levelled base before installation, other matters will be resolved by Brette Haus team.

  • Do I need a concrete base?
Good news! There is no need for a permanent foundation. Brette Haus could be placed on any levelled base. However, we recommend using a screw pile foundation. It is not considered permanent and it can be removed with minimal impact on the site. This allows you to relocate house multiple times with the same foundation.

  • What do I need to install a tiny house?
There are a few things you could consider in advance. First of all, how accessible your place is? If access to the property is limited, additional costs could be incurred for more powerful vehicles.
Basic installation requires clear vehicular access to the building site; space for the machinery within 3 meters of the building site; stable and levelled foundation; no obstacles of any nature; access to electricity available during the installation period.
Unless you’re intending to go completely off the grid, you should consider how the building connects to your sewer network, water supply and the electric grid. Utility access points should be within 1 meter of the plugs.
Please note that some regions require a local expert to complete connection of the mains.

Support And Warranty
  • What is the warranty period and service life for Brette Haus unfolding cabins?
We give 24 months warranty from the manufacturer. Brette Haus hinge system stands for 100 folding cycles. We use Cross-Laminated timber material to prefabricate every unfoldable cabin. The Building Research Establishment in the UK has certified the CLT product for a life span of 60 years and there are inhabited timber buildings in Europe that are over 700 years old (links proofs). The key factor for the durability of a timber structure is the humidity control. Proper air circulation and regular coating maintenance will extend the life span significantly.

  • How do you make sure the house doesn't fly away in a storm like in Dorothy from the Land of Oz?
Brette Haus always puts safety first. Every folding wood house was calculated to be resistant to earthquake and strong wind. The smallest cabin weights the same as a pickup truck since we use certified structural wood for all construction elements.
The material we use for floors, walls and ceilings was engineered durable and sustainable for housing (Cross-laminated timber wikilink). Unique hinge system makes our houses even stronger. Inside the house, everything is organized in such a way that nothing breaks down on the road - even if the road is not of the best quality.
Yet, we recommend using screw pile foundation in unstable locations.
